Comments Our group is now working on the stability, structure, and function of proteins that are important for microbial energy metabolism. A characteristic aspect of our research activity is comparison of the homologous proteins isolated from microorganisms living in extreme environments in which humans cannot live and those isolated from 'normal' environments. Why are we interested in extreme environments? Firstly, we would like to observe biological phenomena occurring at the edges of life, and understand their substantial features. Also, we want to know the essence of life. In addition, we will apply the outstanding ability of microbial energy metabolism in order to solve the energy problems that humans must solve.
